prayer for this 24 yr old single mother, with 2 children, suffering from panic disorder and clinical depression. she hasn't left her house in 5 months.

prayer for anyone who is suffering from this disorder. this woman has 2 small children she cannot do for. she is living in complete fear. she hasn't left her house in 5 months. she went from full of life down to practically nothing. she has thought about killing herself, but loves life and her children too much. she needs a prayer and some guidance. this is a poem written by her.

feelings of worry fly all around
no longer i feel on solid ground.
how could this happen to me?
i was so strong, so carefree?
i wanna live a normal life,
be a mother to my kids, even a loving wife.
you took my sanity and life away from me,
please anxiety, leave me be!
now i have to take medication,
i let down my guard of strength in desperation
am i ever gonna be really me?
please anxiety, just leave me be!
let me wake and start my day,
without you interfering and getting in my way.
your tearing away at me,
please anxiety leave me be!!

Just wanted you to know that I've gone through this also. For 10 years I have dealt with panic attacks.
Are you on medication, and if so what kind? Please write to me at
God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind.
Please write, I'm praying for you.

Hello Jaime, My name is Linda, I too suffer from depression and panic attacks. You can give it to God and He does answer your prayers. He gives other people knowledge to take care of us who are troubled with these things. You can take charge of your life, I take medicine every day and I have been where you are, but even though I take medicine I still have God in control of my life. He is always with us in the valleys and helps us get to the mountain top. I will be praying for you and God Bless You. You can email me at

Hi Jaime...
A dear friend of mine sent this prayer circle to me and I felt led to share my story with you. I'm 27 yrs old and I have a 3 year old son. Almost a year ago, I had my first debilitating panic attack. It was aweful, no words can describe how I felt...I just thought it was the end of the world. Unfortunately, that was the beginning of a true live nightmare for me. I struggled and struggled until I finally broke down and saw a doctor. He wanted to put me on medication but I was too proud. I thought, if I did, I'd be labled 'crazy'....geez, I'd be on psychotic medication. The thought was terrifying itself. Anyway, I ended up giving in, went on and still am on medication for it. It's definitely a daily struggle but I have to say, I could not have done it without Jesus!
I want to share something with you from a book that I read about worry & anxiety.

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday wth its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.

All the money in teh world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a singel word we said. Yesterday is gone.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with its possible adversaries, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds...but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.

This leaves only one day...Today. Any man can fight the battle of just one day, it is only when you and I add the burdens of those two aweful eternities...Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that drives men is remorse or bitterness for something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.

-Author unknown

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. (Peter 5:6-9)

My favorite is Phil. 4:6-8!!!!

I could go on and on...which I'm sure you can relate as well. If you ever need anyone to chat with, please feel free to e-mail me.
